First meeting of Alpha Eta Rho at Eastern Kentucky University for the year

Last night was a great night for me. Alpha Eta Rho, a professional fraternity for pilots, met for the first time this year to discuss major items and to recruit new members. I decided not to join last year because I was strapped for money and free time, but I am going to this year. While it isn’t the largest organization on campus, it’s a fantastic way to meet older aviation students that may have moved off campus, and to further explore the field of aviation in the area. I met three great guys there already, and I’m looking forward to the future when I can meet other members when flying for a company. The major item for the year was to raise money for Wings of Hope-a charity that among other things uses aircraft to help ferry those in need. They are trying to raise money to buy a Piper Seneca to further help with this, and the current members thought it would be a nice idea to help out. Ideas were thrown around such as a 5K at the airport and dinners. I think it’ll be great, and can’t wait to see what else I’ll do in this organization once I’m added officially.
